The Shenandoah Region of the Porsche Club of America (PCA) is dedicated to enjoying Porsche cars in central Virginia. While Porsches are the common element, our members provide the club with variety and enthusiasm. We organize scenic driving tours, run six autocrosses each year, and take part in high-performance driver's education (DE) events at the Virginia International Raceway and other tracks. Our premier event is the Richmond Porsche Meet (RPM), a June weekend including a concours, lunch, driving tour, tech session, banquet, and an autocross at the Southside Speedway. We also hold a Christmas party and several other social meetings annually.
Nonmembers are welcome to participate in a social meeting, a driving tour, or an autocross. Learn more about the Shenandoah Region PCA and our upcoming events, the PCA Zone 2 comprising 10 nearby regions, the national PCA, and how to JOIN PCA.

Porsche Car Corral at VIR's Oak Tree Grand Prix TUDOR Races on

Your ticket gives you access to the paddock where you can see the cars and drivers up close and personal.
This will be a great opportunity to see the Porsche factory teams driving the 911 and 912 cars. Don't miss this chance to see some exciting racing on one of the premier road courses in the U.S. Tickets range from $50.00 to $190.00 depending on the package.
To purchase your tickets and car corral pass, click here.
Also, volunteers are needed to help staff the car corral and tent for the two-day event. There are various shifts available both Saturday and Sunday August 22nd and 23rd from 7:30 AM – 6 PM (Sat) and 8 AM – 4:30 PM (Sun). Should you wish to volunteer at the event, we have 10 tickets for access to the race each day. Volunteers will receive a ticket for the day they are working so when not volunteering they may enjoy the race activities.

Please contact PCA Porscheplatz/Car Corral Coordinator Tuffy von Briesen at email@example.com if you have questions about the car corral.
First Settlers Region Fall DE at VIR: Please join the First Settlers Region for their September 19 – 21, 2015 Drivers Education (DE) at VIR in Alton, VA. The first two days (Saturday and Sunday) will be on the South Course, and the third (Monday) will be on the Full Course. This event is open to any driver 18 and over with a valid US-issued driver's license and with any make/model of car. On-line registration will close on September 5, but it is a good idea to register sooner in case the event fills up.
Are you new to DE and on the fence about whether Driver's Education is for you? Then register for their DE INTRO on Saturday! For a $50 fee, they will get you onto the track in your car with an instructor for a single session mid-day on Saturday, July 11. Standard DE safety requirements apply, so you will need a Snell SA rated helmet. FSR has a few loaners available, so please email the registrar before you sign up if you'd like to borrow one.
